Greetings, singers!
 
You are all invited, as always, to join the All Comers' Chorus.
 
The first principle of the Chorus is "More singing! Less wrangling!".
 
To that end - please send me your requests.
 
Suitable songs are
- written before 1600 (ish), or in a similar style
- suitable for part-singing
- well-known to at enough people to cover the parts and/or easy enough to sight-read
- freely available online - if not in a common song-book, please send a link
 
Songs requested for the Chorus - now updated to include everything we sang.
 
  1. Alle Psallite
  2. Laudemus (look for "Red book of Montserrat" to find music)
  3. Catch of the midnight cats
  4. Innsbruck

  6. O my heart
  7. Il Bianco
  8. Je ne l'ose dire
  9. Dona nobis pacem
